Basketballer to sue Brown-Drake nightclub owners

LEGAL ACTION: Tony Parker

SAN ANTONIO Spurs basketballer Tony Parker is to sue owners of WiP nightclub in Manhattan, New York, for £12,850,000 after suffering injuries during a brawl on July 14.

Reports claim that the furore was between singer Chris Brown and rapper Drake, who had allegedly come to blows over their ex-girlfriend, Bajan artist Rihanna.

In papers filed to the Manhattan Supreme Court, Parker states that he holds the owner’s of WiP responsible for the “corneal laceration of the left eye and other injuries” that he suffered at the fracas where bottles were reportedly thrown.

While Parker’s lawyer, David Jaroslawicz, does not blame either Brown or Drake, the owners of WiP have been criticised for creating a hostile atmosphere.

“The defendants were reckless, careless and negligent in permitting Drake’s entourage and Brown’s entourage to be in the club at the same time despite known tension between the two,” said Jaroslawicz.

Speaking about Rihanna, Jaroslawicz continued: “She’s been known, like Helen of Troy, to cause trouble.”

French international Parker, who is set to compete at the London 2012 Olympic Games, was said to be wearing a protective lens after sustaining damage to his left eye during the brawl.
